I’m really interested in evolution in general. I like to approach the different questions relative to evolution and speciation using a theoretical approach.

During my thesis, I investigated the genetic mechanisms potentially responsible for the formation of new species as well as the footprints that may be left in the genome due to this event. Previously, I worked on the effects of sex on the mutational load of populations.
